Welcome!

“Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” Psalm 119:11

Knowing and remembering God’s Word helps us navigate through the good times and the bad.  I hope you follow with me as I share my daily walk and study the scriptures.  Short and sweet, I pray my posts help you remember these verses to pull out and use whenever you might need them too!

Proverbs 31

Far Above RubiesThere are few women who understand their own worth but God knows.  A woman worth more than rubies is not rare because there are so few of them, she is rare because she is like a buried treasure, hidden and unknown.

If every woman knew her true value, what a beautiful thing that would be!  Maybe even a little frightening too!

Designed to be of greater value than the rarest of gems, what a tragic sadness that so many of us see ourselves as simple as sand and look for our worth in other ways. Our looks, our words, our actions, our possessions, the people we spend our time with, the things we spend our time doing, things we think add value but add camouflage instead.

God sees our true value no matter how things we bury it under and we need to trust in Him to show us how we can see it too. Let Him be our map and compass to find our very own buried treasure in ourselves!

Wednesday’s Women

Esther

Esther

There are times in our lives where the only thing we can think to do is pray but the book of Esther reminds us what prayer can do for us.  Her story of love, faith, grace and courage is inspiring and has a happy ending.

Knowing all she could do was pray, she asked all those around her to fast and pray with her. Her prayers gave her strength, her faith gave her purpose and her courage saved her people.

When it feels like all you can do is pray, perhaps that’s just what you need to do first and the rest will come.

“Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14

Tuesday’s Truth

Ephesians 4:17

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ has forgiven you.”

 

be kind

 

Be kind, even when you’re right!

None of us deserve the love and kindness God gives us so being kind to only those who actually deserve it might be harder than just being kind as often as we can.

The days we can make Jesus look good to anyone who does not know Him is a great day indeed!

Manic Monday

Jesus strength

Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

 

It’s Monday again, crazy, busy, frustrating, never-ending Monday!  Just remember that no matter what your plans are for the day, God’s in control so take a deep breath and repeat after me.  Jesus gives me strength! Praise the Lord!

Sunday’s Psalm – Grace

Grace

Psalm 19:12

Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my stregth and my Redeemer.

 

Arguing politics, defending our faith, disciplining our children or just repeating a story can easily carry us and our words far from grace. Memorize this verse and remember to use it often, letting your thoughts and words be flavored with a little grace from heaven rather than the salty flavors of the earth!
